The Brakhage Lectures: George Melies, David Wark Griffith, Carl Theodore Dreyer, Sergei Eisenstein

Chicago: The Goodlion, 1972. First Edition. INSCRIBED by Brakhage on the front endpaper to his friend and colleague Annette Michelson: "June 17, 1972 / To Annette / Some small echoing answer to your life's work...and in friendship - * / Stan / [at bottom of page] * and..." Michelson is today a Professor of Cinema Studies at New York University. In this volume, published in 1972, Brakhage investigates four of the principal architects of cinema, including Sergei Eisenstein. In 1973 (one year after the publication of this book) Michelson wrote an important early piece on Brakhage in ArtForum titled "Camera Lucida / Camera Obscura," comparing the work of Brakhage and Eisenstein. A wonderful association, and an important collection by one of the most important cinematic artists of the 1970s. Very Good plus in paper-covered card wrappers as issued, with moderate rubbing and a bit of light wear at the extremities. [Book #122139]
